Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The COMPLETE Terrapin Station Suite- All 9 Tracks- Help Needed

MY GOAL- To assemble as complete of a "Terrapin Station Suite," from beginning to end, as is possible with all the music that has been written/recorded.

The complete Terrapin Station Suite, as written by the great Robert Hunter, consists of the following tracks:

Part 1
Lady With A Fan
Terrapin Station
At A Siding (not RH)

Part 2
Return To Terrapin
Ivory Wheels, Rosewood Track
And I Know You
Jack O' Roses
Leaving Terrapin
Recognition

As far as I've been able to find on the good ol' internet, Robert Hunter has not performed "Return to Terrapin," "And I Know You," "Leaving Terrapin," or "Recognition." What I really want is someone here to tell me that he HAS played the entire suite, from beginning to end, and direct me towards a recording of that. More likely, however, is that I will have to piece together the separate parts from the cobbled meanderings of other artists, as neither Jerry nor Hunter himself ever put the ENTIRE suite to music. Again, this is all to the best of MY knowledge, and I do hope that I'm incorrect.

Outside of the Dead's Terrapin Station Part I and the "Ivory Wheels, Rosewood Track" and "Jack O'Roses" from Hunter's 1980 "Jack O'Roses" LP, I haven't found the completion of the suite actually performed by Hunter or Garcia. So, assuming I am correct, I am wondering by whom, where, and when the remaining parts of the suite were recorded. On this website:

http://www3.clearlight.com/~acsa/introjs.htm?/~acsa/songfile/TERRAPIN.HTM

...a 1996 album called "Play Terrapin Station" by the Mudkats is mentioned, as well as a 1999 work called "Terrapin" by Joe Gallant & Illuminati. I suppose there is a tiny chance that there is unheard material that I seek on one of these two albums, although I can find no information on either composition. I did go to YouTube:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3xxuDPAWRI

...and found this interesting piece of music. I just cannot get into at all, it's difficult to hear and understand, but is it legitimately the music that Robert Hunter apparently vouched for and supported?

Here are Hunter's acoustic studio contributions, presumably from the Jack O'Roses LP which I am getting my grubby paws on ATM:

Terrapin Station - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J233eWvxZbU
Ivory Wheels, Rosewood Track/Jack O'Roses - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqWB0oI957s
Jack O'Roses, Terrapin Station Reprised - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4R9GiUNfa6s

And here, on archive.org, is supposedly the "Return to Terrapin" vouched for by RH himself, with music by "Rodleen":

http://www.archive.org/details/ReturnToTerrapin

So, assuming that all my information is so far correct, that leaves "And I Know You," "Leaving Terrapin," and "Recognition" to still be discovered. These are, I'd say, pretty important seeing as how the conclusion to the Terrapin Story is contained within the lyrics. So, if anyone can add ANYTHING to my research, it would be so much appreciated!

on April 29th, 1982, Robert Hunter performed the ENTIRE Terrapin Suite in all it's incarnations on the back porch of his marin county pad, his playing was flawless, his voice carried the tune like a spell spun with the web of a gilded spider...his girlfriend du jour and the four friends lay stoned on the floor in raptured audience to what was unfolding before them, but alas, THEY FORGOT TO HIT RECORD! can you believe that? bummer

According to the set list for the show at the Other End (with Larry Klein) on 20th July 1978, he played the full Terrapin Station Suite, but, if memory serves, some songs were missing from the recording...(I don't have access to my disks right now, so I can't confirm)
http://db.etree.org/lookup_show.php?shows_key=378745

In the Robert Hunter Set List Archive, the set list for March 2nd 1997 carries the following note - '*Included first (only?) performance of 'Recognition' section'. I can't confirm this as this recording has so far eluded me.

first of all, i'm honored that you think im a genius. good guess.

second, if you had shed your sarcasm and haughtiness (undoubtedly absorbed from some of the other self-absorbed know-it-alls on this forum) and listened to the song you so rudely directed me to, you might have found that it simply does not contain multiple of the songs included in the entire 9-part suite; where are "Return to Terrapin," "And I Know You," or "Leaving Terrapin?"

guess what, kids, they arent there- and if any of you ever-so-intelligent wish-you-were-there "deadheads" ACTUALLY knew something that I don't, I can only hope that you would have SAID SOMETHING instead of dealt with me in the way unabashed assholes would have...

however, thanks for reminding me how prickish old deadheads can be when they assume that they control every piece of useful information on the planet. at any rate, although i have more information NOW on the entire suite than apparently ANY of these "look at me i know more than you!!!!1!1!" dicks could even make up on their own, rest assured that i wont bother sharing any of it with these jokes of deadheads on the archive forum. by the way- do any of you jerks even PLAY music, or are you just fanboys? now THAT was refreshing.

finally:

Q: How many deadheads does it take to change a lightbulb?

A: None! They just wait for it to burn out, then follow it around for 30 years!

Have you found out if Robert has performed more than that Boulder 97 show TS? I think I heard a 2004 show TS that was longer but didn't contain 'recognition'. I admit I haven't read through all of the previous posts because a lot of them were made by people that had nothing legit to say. (most of them didn't even say anything related to terrapin, just a lot of out-of-skull high shit)

whilst

http://tela.sugarmegs.org/_asxtela/asxcards/roberthunter2003-06-11.html

has Terrapin Suite.

If you check out this link there is a quote from from Robert Hunter saying he played the whole suite including Recognition in Boulder Colorado on 03.02.1997.

Brother, it is AMAZING. It brings me chills to just THINK about the emotional progression and completeness of the entire suite. One of the most amazing pieces of literary art I've ever known. Reading Terrapin solidified Robert Hunter's place (IMHO, anyways) as one of the most important, psychically connected songwriters in history.

I would absolutely recommend that anyone interested in beauty or love read Terrapin Station in its entirety.

Hey DP--having joined so recently, I hope you don't find the sorts of lame attempts at humor (mine mostly) distracting...it is difficult sometimes when so much of the conversation is between "old regulars" but I always try to intersperse some DEAD commentary myself...anyway, subjects come and go, so stick around and it'll improve.

BTW, my read of THead is that because he wants something to be available, comments to the contrary must not be tolerated...and, reading thru, it seems "he started it" as trivial as it is to say it...

Then my work is done here...

Great to see LiA chime in on the TC thread...knew he'd covered it before, but still thought a handful of us had some novel insights, not to mention fun, with that one.

What's enjoyable about these "detective" + "inference" style analytic threads is precisely the interplay between those two aspects. Unlike some issues, the TC thread shows how good detective work (ie, you putting together the timeline on TC, albums, etc.) can provide key info vis-a-vis a set of inferences (ie, "mine" with respect to suggestions of what happened when in 68 re: development of the suites). Instead of it being nothing but speculation & guesswork as to motivations, etc., we can uncover critical tidbits that better inform our analysis.

Don't mean to be making too much of the analysis of the analysis of a long dead band, but adding that to the mix of a bunch of old established forum friends keeps things interesting around here, eh?

finally...

you can't possibly call terrapin "melodramatic" if you know a damn thing about drama...

it is clearly FAR too complex of a story with characters exhibiting and dynamically devloping both positive and negative traits, with both admirable and evil character traits and faults inherent. I suppose if you compared the occurrences in (wildly simplified) the "first stanza" to the the occurrences in the "last stanza," if you will, a small indicator of melodrama may be inferred, but errantly; I guess you could call it "metadramatic" due to its dynamic, up-and-down feel throughout the piece, but ABSOLUTELY not "melodramatic." dont use words you dont understand.

Besides being something of a drama queen what qualifies you to hold forth? Terrapin IS melodramatic - full of overblown emotions and stereotypical characters. Shorn of the music it is banal in the extreme, derivative and full of cliched imagery. Its success is entirely down to Garcia's setting.

And while we are on the subject, I must say that Terrapin is one those tunes I could really do without seeing live EDIT: as often as I did. The studio version is outstanding, but as a live tune it just doesn't do it for me. Way too structured and predictable for my tastes (in terms of what I would rather see at a show...or would have rather seen, to be more chronologically accurate). Plus you add on the stress the tune puts on Jerry's vocals, it could, and often did, become somewhat of a train wreck at times as Jerry struggled to hit the high ones. There were times at that particular juncture I swear I could see the Ghost of Cat Mangler's Past arise from behind the stage and look down upon the old man as if to say "OK, maybe not a good ol' Donna PITB spine wrencher, but not bad, not bad at all".

that's interesting, i don't like the studio version much at all (although "at a siding" is intriguing); even as RH (and quite possibly jerry as well) felt, terrapin was recorded and finished to soon w/o the proper development, because it had to be shipped off so the producer could "gussy it up with strings"

As for Jerry, I don't think he was ever truly satisfied with the band's studio efforts. I recall Jerry mentioning Mars Hotel as his favorite studio album.

Here is note 1 after the lyrics:

[(1) In his journal for 12 June 2003, Hunter explained: "Jack O'Roses ... is a Garcia composition, one he never played. Not because he didn't like it, but he was never keen to add lyric parts to a song already recorded. I always felt "Terrapin" was recorded too soon, there was much more to do on it. But recording company pressures dictated that our contributions to the album be done by a certain date so that the producer could take it off to London and gussy it up with strings."]

We could confirm this with a check into hunter's journals, which are no longer on his website. I think they are on the internet somewhere, as I recall reading a number of them looking for traces of rare terrapin performances. Who knows, though.

OK - let's cut to the chase and stop being so gentlemanly and reticent about this. Terrapin sucks the big one. It is pedestrian in the extreme and of interest only to the fundamentally naive and intellectually gullible for whom Dan Brown stands alone as the most insightful writer of our generation.

For me, the only thing comprable to Jerry singing Terrapin in the later years would be a Puberty-ridden Peter Brady reciting, er, screeching passages from "Angels and Demons".

An Irish one at that (of course, you knew that), and in spite of what the brits did to "us" (as he would always say), he had a real fondness for the military poets of the late 19th cent. Many a time, nursing some injury of sorts, while I was waiting to go to the doc, he would sooth my soul with renditions of various epic tales (charge of light brigade, fuzzy, gunga, etc.).

Old Kipling had his finger on the pulse and is still pretty relevant today. I think people across the pond have the same difficulties we do in reconciling deep respect for the troops on the ground in Afghanistan with despising the politicians who put them there. Kipling had something to say about that too:

If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,
Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:
So take open order, lie down, and sit tight,
And wait for supports like a soldier.
Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . .

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Go, go, go like a soldier,
Soldier of the Queen!

You really think I don't understand "melodramatic"?

One could use the term to refer to StSt, my fav tune, for crying out loud..."one man gathers what another man spills" is by defn, "melodramatic"

Here we go: "exaggerated and emotional or sentimental; sensational or sensationalized; overdramatic."

You going to sit there and tell me that Terrapin ain't EXACTLY the above defn of "melodramatic"?

Terrapin is in fact, by Hunter's own allusions, "over-written" and "overly complex"...

It does not compare favorably with his earlier writings among critics of prose/poetry...where he goes too far, in my view, is in attempting a defn "story"...

Hunter does best when keeping it short and sweet.

If there is one thing I have a resonable understanding of, though often forsaking it here, it is the English language, so I don't think that's the issue...

So far, you're not doing well in that regard. I put some below for you to ponder...common usage my friend, common usage...

Oh, this is too funny--check this out for addt'l sorts that find TS "melodramatic" (no, I am not making this up, nor am I the reviewer, Doug Collete):

"Given the ingenuous nature of this band, it's perhaps little surprise that one of their most pure instances of inspiration—Garcia and lyricist Robert Hunter's near-simultaneous creative epiphany giving birth to "Terrapin Station"—would end up one of their most seriously tainted projects. For this, their first record for Arista---founded by the archetypal record mogul Clive Davis as an expatriate of behemoth Columbia Records—Grateful Dead deferred to producer Keith Olsen, fresh off his mammoth success with Fleetwood Mac, who orchestrated stings and vocal choir for this epic piece; a tighter more concise arrangement, emphasizing the spaces between the pieces of the suite rather than filling those spaces, would've been much preferable. The melodrama on the studio version is almost laughable, especially given what the band, even so recently as this summer, was able to do with the piece in concert, and the fact that melodrama is virtually alien to this group that brought new meaning to the word understatement."

Just to assist you, here are multiple defn's of the term:

ONE:
"1.
a. A drama, such as a play, film, or television program, characterized by exaggerated emotions, stereotypical characters, and interpersonal conflicts.
b. The dramatic genre characterized by this treatment.

2. Behavior or occurrences having melodramatic characteristics."

TWO:

"A dramatic form characterized by excessive sentiment, exaggerated emotion, sensational and thrilling action, and an artificially happy ending. Melodramas originally referred to romantic plays featuring music, singing, and dancing, but by the eighteenth century they connoted simplified and coincidental plots, bathos, and happy endings. These melodramatic traits are present in Gothic novels, western stories, popular films, and television crime shows."

THREE:

"A dramatic work with a musical setting where the dialogue is spoken - for the duration of the work or for certain scenes only. Many operas have melodramatic scenes of this kind."

FOUR:

"1. (noun) melodrama
formerly, a kind of drama having a musical accompaniment to intensify the effect of certain scenes. Now, a drama abounding in romantic sentiment and agonizing situations, with a musical accompaniment only in parts which are especially thrilling or pathetic. In opera, a passage in which the orchestra plays a somewhat descriptive accompaniment, while the actor speaks; as, the melodrama in the gravedigging scene of Beethoven's "Fidelio"..."

Looks like I have a point, eh TH?

Well, if you ask me, you could spend your time far more productively with Hunter's works prior to 71...seriously. Terrapin is grossly over-written, overly melo-dramatic, and frankly, just not up to snuff. But, that is a very biased viewpoint of one that has spent a great deal of time with Hunter's early works...It is certainly the case that Ashes Rising, a former frequent poster hereabouts, would no doubt have a great deal to talk with you about--you should seek him out. But, for now, to each his own. Enjoy your pursuit!

This is the sixth song in Robert Hunter's Terrapin Station Suite. It was never played by the Grateful Dead (nor, so far as I know by Robert Hunter himself).

This is the penultimate song in Robert Hunter's Terrapin Station Suite. It was never played by the Grateful Dead (nor, so far as I know by Robert Hunter himself).

Yes I've read those comments many times :) My feeling is that there is more out there. I know that RH revisited the entire suite at one point, according to notes from "Box of Rain" that I first saw on that same website, and I want very badly to believe that somewhere is a performance, if nothing else then by RH's spoken word, of the remaining missing pieces of the suite.

I have 1 comment.

If, while reading posts in an internet forum, you come across the words, "I feel sorry for you", simply replace those words with, "I know that I'm better than you. You ignorant slut".

I have found that this sentence is always associated with some sort of less-than-civil debate and the one who writes it is, in troll-theory, assuming the moral high ground. But we all know this is just another passive-aggressive insult.

In summary:

I feel sorry for you = You suck, I rock.

If you think about using this insult, think again. If you read this insult in a post, simply decode and respond with a jovial "Blow me".

Look TrumpetHead, I was simply pointing out a very common phrase which is used in web-based mud-slinging. You used it and it reminded me how pathetic it is to say such a thing. You don't really feel sorry for anybody here, do you? I thought not.

Your project sounds interesting and I explored several of the links you posted. I am very sorry I don't have the magic link that will bring your efforts to fruition. Hopefully, if all goes well, the next person who comes around asking this question will find an answer based on your research.

Blow my ego?:) That's a new one!

Hmmm,that's rather cute , High Flow but these words should e told only to your lady , methinks . As for 'being sorry' it is not as you say : we may say truly sorry when we hear about someone explainig they are getting surgery or had an accident or lost someone dear . ONly when i tell Cliff Hucker about 'being sorry for him ,poor thing" i really mean it as a joke , of course but not in a snobbish way .(yet i think it would be ridiculous to feel sorry for some nasty people i won't evenbother to name here )

I care about your search ,Trumpethead ,and there are a lot of nasty snobs here ,and plain idiots too convinced they know it all because they gobbled what medias tell them to think . Vulgar and utterly boring they can get, don't let them intimidate you and keep saying whatever suits you here ,as a few of them are fairly decent and will talk back with you to discuss on infos you search ! Don't give up ,never !

Look, sunshine I tried to help you, tried to find you a positive way of crafting your own answer, but all you seem to want is to have someone else hand it to you on a plate. I'm not in the least bitter, I just have a low tolerance for hypocritical ungrateful arseholes who think they can say what they like then sugar it with a nauseating 'much love' that'll make everything hippy dippy all right.

Highly entertaining to you perhaps, but somewhat ho-hum to me. Yes, on the whole I am much more a huggable teddy bear than a bitter, hateful person, but you just might not get to see it if you continue to come across as such a dick. It's 2 am, I'm tired, and I'm going to bed, so don't expect further responses.
